Before venturing up Whistler Blackcomb to snowboard, we visited Coca-Cola Tube Park. It is the first gondola stop and is free to take coming from Whistler Village. A great activity to do in the afternoon after a quick meal!

There is a bit of walking involved in this activity. After getting off the gondola, walk across the snow lane and head up a few stairs. After this little walk from the gondola, you then have to walk up to a conveyer belt. This is definitely something to do the day before an all-day snowboarding because your legs wouldn’t have the ability to do it otherwise! We found out the hard way that there is also a parking lot just before the stairs. If you plan on driving, instead of the free gondola, the parking lot saves on convenience.

When purchasing tickets, you have a choice of one or two hours which was assigned to the wristband you have to wear. After deciding how long you want to spend at the park, you can grab your tube and get to sliding!

The wristband was scanned every time you go up on the belt. This conveyor is what will take you to the top of the hill where you then slide down. There is also a mid-way point for smaller child (smaller tubes).

Once up top, you have the choice of picking two lines. One line is for single riders who want to race each other! The other line is for couples who want to stay together or hold hands going down. Either lane is just as fun and fast. There are a few, fun, bumps while headed down which makes the experience even more enjoyable.

Landon put his one hour to good use going up and down until time ran out.

After your time is up, you can either repurchase for more hours or bring your tubes back.

We recommend doing this park as an activity to kill if you are waiting for an event or just want a small, fun activity for the day. It didn’t take much effort and with the conveyor belt to assist, takes only about 5 minutes to get to the top of the hill. I think you can go up and down five to six times within the period you purchased if you plan it right. However, we believe doing this before long days on the mountain skiing or snowboarding is better because your body may be sore if muscles groups are not familiar with those activities. This slide park is a little fun detour on a slow slope day.

  1. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though
    you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre
    talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos
    to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  2. Greetings! Very useful advice in this particular post!
    It’s the little changes that produce the greatest changes.
    Thanks for sharing!
